WordPress Security

Every day, some scary article or Facebook post about a major site being hacked or a sensitive database being compromised hits the web and everyone is code red. Did you know that Google blacklists over 6,000 malware-infected websites a day? Consider the ramifications of your website being blacklisted tomorrow. Might hinder your traffic a bit, no? Securing your WordPress site is one of the most critical aspects of starting your online presence and growing it to the next level. As your site becomes more popular and garners the attention of new consumers, it also becomes a more attractive target for hackers and people who are up to no good. While there is no silver bullet when it comes to securing a site, there are several things that can be done to make it less likely that your site will be compromised. When I first launched Keekee360design.com some 6 years ago, I couldn’t have told you the difference between DDOS and Mike Doss. I was among the ranks of those who used the same password for all my accounts … and my bank account … and, you get the idea. Over time, I have learned the importance of taking security seriously.… Read More»

Designing a logo for your business can often be a challenging task – involving time, resources and internal debate. A good logo sets the stage for your company’s visual brand for years to come. Your logo is the foundation of your brand. Your logo’s design not only influences how your customers (and the rest of the world) perceive your brand—it also dictates the colors, fonts, and graphics that will be used in your marketing materials. From email signatures all the way up to your website, your logo design holds power. So what is a Logo? Your logo is a symbol, sign, wordmark or emblem. Logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization across different mediums.     What is Brand? A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with, by identifying the name, logo, slogan, or design of the company. Branding is when that idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people, and identified with a certain service or product when there are many other companies offering the same service or product.

How to get away with Branding

Branding is the process of aligning the opinions people hold about your brand with the set of thoughts you want them to believe and trust. Apple has done an excellent job of branding its’ company and changing the rules along the way. Apple blew up the rules of branding because Steve Jobs simply didn’t follow the traditional rules, and he never did what he was supposed to do. He knew that someone else’s success wouldn’t be his own, because it’s a fact that imitating others has never resulted in great successes. It’s just great flattery. The rules that criminal-law professor Annalise Keating tells her students to follow if they want to win a case on the hit TV show, How to get away with murder is: Discredit the witness. Find a new suspect. Bury the evidence. Through the television series there are several lessons learned by the student. In this article, we will take the same approach; so pay attention. At the end of the quarter, a grade will be given and it will be measured by the implementation of these rules and the success of your brand. Trust the witness Good branding starts with people aka your witness. People… Read More»

But like everyone else, these awesome companies started small, dwarfed by the incumbents in their chosen industries. They reached unprecedented heights, but only after making mistakes and facing challenges that would’ve made others buckle. Yes, these are awesome companies are massive. But their journey can teach you how to run a successful small business – and maybe even reach the summit like they did.

Adobe Stock: The Changing Face of Women in Advertising and Creativity

Adobe Stock: The Changing Face of Women in Advertising and Creativity AoiroStudio Mar 21, 2017 It’s Women’s History Month and it’s always a great occasion to celebrate the incredible things accomplished by women. We are taking a look at this very interesting article/initiative by our friends over at Adobe Stock. They have gathered some data to bring up the awareness in the environment of advertising and creativity. They aren’t just women, they are the symbols of something quite bigger. We would advise you guys to read the full article. Check out the shared images from Adobe Stock’s top female contributors for this dedicated gallery. As we reported earlier this month, searches for women are rising across the Adobe Stock collection — they’re up 39% year-over-year (YoY). And searches that seek women as the protagonist of the image are 1.8 times more common than similar searches for men. With queries for women up overall, we decided to dive deeper into the numbers (our aggregated, anonymous data for over 450 million Adobe Stock searches in the last year) to learn more about the types of images people looked for.
